The pro-life program helps any pregnant mom. The program operates on: Hope, Help, and Healing.They begin with the simple education of the growth of the child in the womb, giving them hope. There is lots of ignorance about the development of the child before birth. When women learn about the fetal development in the womb their attitudes change. It counters the propaganda that there is only tissue and not a human being growing within her.
The second movement is to help the moms by giving them resources they may not be able to get. The missionaries immediately start them on vitamins and make sure the mom is eating properly so the child will be healthy. The missionaries also help prepare the moms for the birth by providing the necessary clothes, baby food, cribs and strollers so when the mom comes home from the birthing hospital she is completely ready to care for the child. Unfortunately at times the child is born with an illness or malnourished, medicine and special food supplements are provided as well.
In Russia to give birth you need to bring everything that you may need. The pro-life program also provides moms with blankets,pampers, clothes, sheets for the bed, and any extra food needed during the birth. When the child is ready to come home with the mom the missionaries meet them at the birthing hospital with flowers and lots of love.
Thirdly, the pro-life program nurtures healing through Rachel’s Vineyard, a retreat for those who have experienced the trauma and tragedy of abortion. Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe environment for the women to share their pain, and to be counseled by women who have gone through the same thing. Women come out of the retreat with lighter hearts knowing the Lord of Lords loves them through everything.
